Helmet Card Mock Up Pics?

I am trying to help a friend get a decent Jango helmet done for his son. I remembered seeing THIS thread about a cardboard mock up as a geometric frame, but it seems that all the pictures are gone.

Does anyone have them?

Thanks

I actually just built one of these with some extra foam board. I used WOF's templates. I'm scratchbuilding a wearable helmet now, but the foam board one I'll probably try to make a mold of the same way MLC did it.

Good luck with the helmet!

(y) Thanks for the link, I think some of those were the ones I was looking for.

Do you have a link for WOF's templates?

And does anyone know if you would use a plaster and release agent right on that cardboard for molding?

Thanks again.

Here's WOF's templates:

Here's MLC's gallery which has the pictures from TK560's site plus a bunch more on molding it:

From the pictures it looks like the helmet was molded straight from the cardboard helmet.

EDIT:

Here's the gallery with the molding process pictures:
